Spring Bank Primary School

Spring 1 Newsletter


Dear parents and carers,

Welcome back! I hope you had a lovely Christmas and a happy new year.


PE is on Tuesdays and Thursdays this half term. PE will be dance and basketball. Please ensure your child has the appropriate kit in school for indoor and outdoor PE.


This half term, our topic will be ‘Heroes and Superheroes’. Children will learn all about the different types of heroes we have in our community, linking to geography and history. They will learn about the life of Sir Leonard Hutton, local sporting heroes and how Headingley has changed over time.


In literacy, we will begin by looking at comics and read Traction Man. We will then move onto information texts about superheroes. In maths, we will be looking at multiplication and division. Please support your child in leaning their 2s, 5s and 10s times tables at home. Also please continue to help your child tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes. Science this half term will be about being healthy. Elena will take the class on Tuesday afternoons, teaching PE and RE.


This half term’s topic homework will be to research a hero from around the world or bring in some learning they have been doing about superheroes.

Please continue to support your child with their reading. It is essential for your child’s progress in reading that they are reading every night and changing their book in school regularly. Thank you for your continued support.

Your child has access to spelling shed and maths shed. This is an online website that they can access on a computer or tablet to support them with their spelling and arithmetic.


Any questions, please come and see me I will be happy to help.


Many Thanks

Miss Johnson
